On the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous ‘I Have A Dream’ speech, coverage was all over the media. But it was selective.

Dr. Martin Luther King lives on in his legacy. There are many voices speaking for what that means today.

Restore, renew, reclaim. Two rallies take place today in Washington on this anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. One is on the spot where Dr. King delivered that famous oration. The other nearby, but headed to the Mall as well. They’re being reported as being two very different groups of activists in tension, having two competing messages. But they’re not. Or….need not be.

What a good time to recall the hard won victory of human dignity over degradation that the civil rights movement struggled for in the South and ultimately, nationwide, in the ’60’s.

In the past two week, racially charged arguments and accusations have been heating up the air waves. Allegations are out there about the Tea Party movement, the New Black Panthers, the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, and certain members of the Obama administration. What’s going on here?


It’s all about abortion

Abortion is the new civil rights movement, and people who believe in the sanctity of all human life and understand the centrality of human dignity to the making of all social policy are walking the same walk Dr. Martin Luther King, Fr. Richard John Neuhaus and armies of human rights activists did to protect the class of people who had been denied rights for so long in this country by virtue of race.
